The Farming industry in Britain and the apple industry in particular has taken a real battering in the last twenty years. Various events have connived to wreak the havoc including the growth of imports from 3rd world countries, the growth of supermarkets, the adoption of the Common Agricultural Policy and the ever increasing burden of regulation on small businesses. All have had their effects. This section of the site has articles about the state of the apple industry, how we got here and how we can get out.

There is also an article of the rise of Organic food. We explain why we are not organic and why we believe that such an approach is not the way forward. Prepare to have your illusions about organic food dashed.
